I'm thinking of trying falim gum to improve my current jaw muscles as my lower third is quite narrow compared to my upper face. How effective is the chewing in regards of jaw muscle growth? I am well aware that the jaw is mainly bone but building some muscle around it couldn't be that bad. I have heard and seen bad cases of masseter hypertrophy any tips to avoid overgrowth would be nice.


Some advice and info would be useful.

If you have no jawbone your face will just end up being round

1h+ chewing daily
Frequent refreshing with cold water to keep gum hard
Aim for a net even left/right chewing pattern

Why just 1 hour? Better to do 3-4 hours. Also, OP, better to use mastic than Falim.

I am using mastic. Sure try 4h...  just make sure to let me know in a few months how much you regret that decision when you are living in agony popping prescription painkillers x3 a day.

Um, I do chew mastic for 4 hours a day, and have been for several months. No problems so far. Prior to that, I was chewing Falim for 3-4 hours a day for several months.
